. the candidates are hitting the trail strong this week. both mitt romney and president obama will start the day off in virginia. the president then heads to oakland, ohio where early voting is already underway. and romney hosts a rally in st. petersburg, florida this evening. romney's challenge now is to prove that was the real mitt romney we saw at the debates. the confident asserttive romney we saw during the debate is not the romney we have grown used to over the last couple of months. romney has since stood by his 47% statement but now he is rolling it back. here is what he said yesterday. >> it's completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown they care about 100%. >> you might think that this new romney is nothing but an act. if you do, you are not alone. here is what the president had to say to a crowd of 30,000 people yesterday in madison, wisconsin. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claims to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country this past year pr
's corruption here, that the chicago people, meaning the guys around president obama, got to the bls. >> chris. >> and manipulated the numbers. >> chris, stop it now. i have reviewed 14 businesses this week from restaurants to rental cars to widgets. i have seen everybody with a third quarter equal to or weaker than first quarter. in order to get 873,000 new jobs, you would have to have a gdp going at 4% to 5%. the second quarter was downgraded from 1.7 to 1.3. the third quarter is the no going to be very strong. it just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than any surge since 1983 a month before the election. i leave it to you to do all the analys analysis. >> i'm just going back because it seemed like you were doing that. let me go to keith hall. he was bush's guy, commissioner of the bls. he said to "the wall street journal" today following what you said, there's no way someone at the bureau of labor statistics could change neb data from its surveys. these numbers are good. so why do you know more than him? do you really think it gets back to the question of integrity. do you beli
with a little bit, as his position has been changing just in the past couple of weeks. on medicare, the republicans had been ahead or even even with the democrats not long ago. but today president obama leads on medicare by 12 points. leads on medicare by even more than he's ahead on health care in general. it's also interesting that the president's middle east numbers, specifically, is ten points higher than his advantage over mr. romney on the broad issue of foreign policy. and then we get into some real contested ground. the president is favored on the issue of taxes, but on the generic question of who would be better trusted to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom lin
not enough photo i.d.s could be issued in the last few weeks before the election, so he didn't want it it to happen in that time frame. supporters say it shows a double standard. >> obama had a rally and you had to have a photo i.d. to go to his rally. if it's good enough for his rally, why is it not good enough for voting? >> martha: interesting point. the voter i.d. law will go into effect, they say, but not until next year. >>> could there be trouble in par are dice for president obama and his one-time buddy, ben affleck. he had high hopes for president obama in 2008. but now affleck admits his feeling for the president are complicated. the actor blamed the president's record for his change of heart. >> brian: he wants him to be more liberal. so does matt damon. that's why he's disappointed. there you go. 12 minutes after the hour. next up, a u.s. border patrol agent shot and killed in the line of duty. so is the federal government failing to give our agents proper protection? we'll report. you decide. >> steve: and did you know having the government in your home for dinner? why
